Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Worst Concert You've Been To?

The most dissapointing concert I've attended, was The Allman Brothers Band on 8/1/93 at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA.
Dickey Betts had been arrested and wasn't going to play the show, so the band got Zakk Wylde to take his place. He played along reasonably well, but just wasn't a good fit for the band musically or otherwise. It was like a member of Spinal Tap had been inserted into an Allman Brothers show.
He strutted around the stage with his black & White bullseye guitar betweeen his crotch for most of the night, making faces and looking more like a heavy metal cartoon character. At one point he stood on the edge of the stage and stuck the guitar between his legs and started wanking it, while sticking his tongue out at the crowd like he was trying to be Gene Simmons at a Kiss concert.
Two of the three friends I was with, walked out halfway through and I wound up leaving with the other friend before the show was over.
